Hi folks,

I'm taking this off PMs, cuz there's now too many to include. We are going to meet for dinner, discuss PF( Steve went), audio, an '09 BAGTG and generally shoot the ****. The date above seems to be the overwhelming favorite.

Attendees commited;
Fredv
trubluluc
shadowofnight
Polk65
artinaz
ivansfo
me

Still waiting on a few more...you know who you are, so post here if you're coming.

Anyone else local that didn't get my PM, you're welcome to come, just post to this thread. I'd like to get all responses in by Monday.

Time: 7:30 ... Luc will be late, he gets off at 7:30, so I'll reserve something for 8:00PM

Place: TBA ... we talked about the Peninsula, but I'm open depending on what's the most convenient for everyone.

Cuisine: John (shadowofnight) requested seafood. That sounds great to me, but the only decent seafood place I know is down here...Hoag's located in SJ and Campbell. Peninsula or Fremont guys if you know of a place, please suggest.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting Ari or any other new members that attend.

Combo rig:

Onkyo NR1007 pre-pro, Carver TFM 45(fronts), Carver TFM 35 (surrounds)
SDA 1C, CS400i, SDA 2B

    I have eaten there...it's decent. Sounds like a good idea.

    That too far for anybody?

    Luc and I are in SJ
    Fred works on the Penin, but lives in Fremont
    Ari, as stated, w/SF, l/Fremont
    Steve is in SF
    Ivan w/Sunnyvale, l/San Bruno
    John is in Hollister and so far has the longest drive.

    Scotts is not far from the Dumbarton for you Fremont guys.

    I also invited Robert (EB/North), Alex (DC), Sky (Patterson) and Farrell (Sac) whose declined due to distance. Haven't heard from the other guys as yet.

    The Fish Market in sunnyvale has pretty good seafood...anywhere is fine for me...just a suggestion. Scotts actual looks pretty good as well :)

    Make sure when you visit your bro in sunnyvale Jesse that you let us know, always need an excuse to raise some hell ;)

    So thursday the 6th is the set day...cool...lets pick the place and we are set.

    I have changed to a new job, and the work hours are somewhat crazy, but I really can't complain these days. I am sure these are not the projects that you want to know;). So here are those still in the parts form:
    - Pass Lab F4
    - Pass Lab Aleph 30 (or 60 if I can source a beefy enough heat sink).
    - Allen Wright RTP3C with balance phono module
    - 300W Chipamp
    If I manage to complete one of the above in the next 8 months, I will be very happy :D

    So whom ever is driving up from the LA area on Friday can pick these up and bring them back with them for me! It'd make a great center piece at dinner and a fun conversation starter. They're only my perfect speaker and if my "check engine" light didn't just come on in my car, I'd do it myself....

    Thanks,

    Don't know how long dinner will last but I might have to break out early in time to get the kids to bed.

    Ron, could you add one more to the reservation? I don't post often but read the forums regularly. Trubluluc and I discussed SDA's a couple of years ago but I don't know anyone else locally. I'm just getting ready to update my 1.2tls purchased new in 1989 so it's a good time to meet some local Polkies (I'm in San Jose). Thanks!
